Private Couples Retreats

Your relationship with your partner/spouse has a great impact on the quality of your life. Whether you are in crisis or just feeling like roommates, taking time out to address the issues in your relationship can be the best thing you do to improve your life.

For some weekly therapy if difficult due to work/family demands or those with inconsistent schedules or lots of travel. A customized retreat can be the solution for those wanting to maximize progress in creating connection and/or healing.

What we offer:

We customize the retreat to address the particular issues you’re are dealing with. We do this by starting with an assessment that you and your partner fill out and send in before the session and then the therapist puts together a plan of activities and training to address those concerns.

Before your retreat:

Each person will fill out an assessment that will allow the therapist to customize the retreat to address what areas of concern you have and to best reach the goals you set for the day and your relationship.

On the day of:

We work through a series of structured exercises, activities and discussions to work on the issues and goals you established in your assessment

  • We provide refreshments and snacks in an upscale, relaxing environment to make the day feel as comfortable as possible
  • We also give you a few other goodies to facilitate taking away the most from the day
  • You will get actionable, manageable tools and strategies that will work towards your goals
  • We will send a follow up email with any suggested next steps and resources

Follow up:

We know that change requires consistent effort so we offer a follow up session at a discounted rate for you to check in about what is and isn’t working and to get further support.

Sometimes couples attend a retreat and then do a session once a month until they feel they have reached their goals, others use it as a jumpstart to address more serious issues and then attend weekly therapy after that. Some just use the retreat as an opportunity to connect and to take their relationship from good to great. Whatever your need we can support you.

Retreats are usually scheduled on Friday, Saturdays or Sundays (other options may be available if those don’t work for you. All retreats are with our Clinical Director and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Amber Hawley, #49614. She has been providing couples counseling for over 9 years and couples are a majority of the clients she sees clinically. She is a relationship expert and infuses humor and a down to earth approach to therapy.
